Holy thread revival. I fitted the Thule 973 today. Thanks to the photos of the rack on the rear of Muzorewa’s van I was able to count the holes to locate the various bolts in the correct places for a Bongo. Only faff was working around the spoiler and rear mirror. Job done :D

Did you shorten the bolts for the bottom rail clamps? They seem a bit excessive in length.

I didn't shorten them. They're long so you can use the lock on them (Thule 567 from memory) which stops any delinquents armed with a 12mm AF spanner removing your rack complete with bikes

Right I see (reason in Thules selection). I’ll look out one of the locks. Next job is fitting the Fiamma F35 - just waiting for brackets to arrive. Cheers.
